‘Stay home’: Washoe County Health Officer pleads this New Year’s Eve

Washoe County Health Officer Kevin Dick is asking residents to stay-home this New Year’s Eve. He says 2020 has been a “terrible” year, and as we ring in 2021, the COVID-19 vaccine brings new promise for a better year ahead. There’s no fireworks this year in Washoe County, but if you are going to gather, Dick urges you celebrate outdoors, socially distance, and wear a mask. Churchill County is holding fireworks tonight at the fairgrounds.
